Jesús Pineda


2005-2008 Fellow

Jesús Pineda (Biology) is working on the regional variability of populations of sedentary coastal invertebrates such as barnacles and mussels. As a fellow, he investigated how ocean currents disperse and transport their larvae, the processes that determine which larvae survive to reproduce after having reached the adult habitat, and the variation of the local populations in terms of their number of eggs, timing of reproduction, and other vital traits.
